Two Promontory homes suffered fire, smoke and water damage after a blaze broke out in the early hours of Monday morning on MacSwan Drive.
Crews from Chilliwack Fire Department were called out at approximately 1 a.m. on Aug. 31 to a structure fire reported in the 47000-block of MacSwan Drive on Promontory.
Crews from Halls 1, 3, 4, and 6 responded to the call initially, and upon arrival discovered a single-family home engulfed in flames, with the fire spreading into the attic of an adjacent home.
“Crews accessed a nearby hydrant, established a water supply and brought the large fire under control utilizing a defensive attack,” according to the report from Chilliwack Fire.
Crews returned to the scene of the fire Monday morning before 9 a.m. after reports of smoke.
Both homes suffered fire, smoke and water damage, but swift action by fire crews at the scene overnight prevented the flames from spreading to other nearby homes.
There were no firefighter or civilian injuries reported and all the occupants were able to safely get out.
“This fire is under investigation by Chilliwack Fire Department and RCMP fire investigators,” according to the release.
Anyone with any information about this fire is asked to call the RCMP at 604-792-4611 or anonymously through Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or www.chilliwackcrimestoppers.ca
